Closed Captions won't work

We don't have hd at our house. we have an old tv so i just have a modulator and hook up the dvd player with a composite connection. i have a hard time seeing movies so i was trying to turn on closed captioning (the movie did not have english subtitles) and although the DVD contains closed captioning and i turn on closed captioning in the set-up menu, the captions won't come out. anybody have any idea what might be wrong?

    the dvd player does have closed captioning abilities. it discusses it in the manual and is available in the set-up menu. however, when i turn cc on in the set-up menu the captions still don't appear when i'm playing a dvd.

Make sure your dvd player has the capability to display closed captions, as not all of them do, also if it does have the capabilities, it may need a scart connection.

    OK, understood. Unfortunately, other than the scart lead suggestion i can think of nothing more that would help, sorry. Good luck

I can't get closed caption off my dvd player


Some DVD players cannot handle closed captions. Cheaper or older hardware players sometimes strip out the closed caption data. Players that have a progressive scan mode sometimes block captions when in this mode. And anything that's connected with an HDMI cable can't pass through captions.Most software players that you use when you play a DVD on your computer don't have any way to decode the captions. Windows Media Player can display DVD captions, and Apple DVD Player can display pop-on captions but not roll-up style captions. Certain paid versions of WinDVD and PowerDVD have CC capability. Look in your player's preferences to see if there are any closed caption options.

How do I hook up the DVD/VCR to cable box and Vizio HDTV?


both should be hooked directly to tv

VCR side of combo should be hooked up with composite video(yellow, red, white wires) to video 1 input

DVD side of combo should be hooked up component video (red, blue, green wires and red white for sound)

cable box should be hooked up HDMI or component to TV if HD or composite video if SD

hope this helps

good luck

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

Connecting magnavox dvd/vcr player DV220MW9 to a 40 year old TV


What type of Inputs do you have on your TV. (ANT IN, S-Videio, RCA Video,RCA Audio)

If you only have a ANT In or RF Coaxial hook up you will need a RF Modulator

But I still have a problem & can't record TV shows onto a VHS tape, possibly
due to my older TV.
Hope you have better luck than me on recording : )

Adapter


Is the inside of the plug on your tv yellow? If so, then you can only connect the tv using a composite cable, which means it needs to receive a composite connection. In your case, you've probably got a dvd player that you're trying to hook up using component (red green and blue cable). Unfortunately, you can't just reduce a component to composite, so there aren't any plain old adapters that will work and converters are pricey.

Do you have a composite (single yellow connector) or your dvd player? If you're not sure, post the Manufacturer and Model # of your dvd player.

If you have composite out on the player, that's how you will have to hook it up. if you don't have a single composite cable, just use one of the connections from the component cable. Just remember to use the same color on both ends.

Black rectangle at bottom of screen when playing dvds on sony dvd player


Had the same problem but was able to fix it by simply doing the following:
"this is closed captions turned on your TV. get your original TV remote and look for a button that says "Captions" or "CC", and keep pressing it until the TV says "Off". if it doen't have one of those buttons, you will need to get into the menu of the TV and turn off closed captions there. It is probably set on "Text1 or Text 2" right now, and it needs to be set on "Off"

Closed caption on dvds


Your TV will need to have (CC) capability. To view Closed Captioning (CC) information from a DVD using the CC function of the television, turn off the Progressive Scan function of the DVD player. If the DVD player doesn't have progressive scan then follow the instructions from your TV manual to setup closed captioning.
